Lost Lake is located on the north side of Mt. Hood, this is a place of slow morning walks, watching sunsets, counting stars and discovering a special part of both yourself and nature's splendor all over again. Lost Lake offers great fishing, hiking, bike trails, or plenty of reasons to do nothing at all.
Lost Lake supports a popular rainbow trout fishery. Legal-sized rainbow trout are stocked in the spring (March-May). Larger (approx.14 inch) trout are stocked in mid-June. Trophy trout (approx.18 inches) are stocked in mid-September. Surplus hatchery winter steelhead are stocked when available from December to February. These fish average about 6-8 lb.
